Wind-Removing Pose: Pavanamuktasana

This Bikram Yoga pose massages ascending, descending and transverse colon, which helps the body to absorb nutrients from food more readily. By helping to cure and prevent flatulence, Wind Removing Posture may help to relieve most chronic abdominal discomforts. Wind removing pose is a forward bend from the hips, which promotes blood circulation to the hip joint, flexibility for the hip joint and also provides a gentle lower-back stretch. We perform the posture by first bending the right knee, then the left and then both. By doing it in this particular order you create pressure on different parts of your abdomen, which improves the health of your digestive system. This posture also prepares you for all the next postures, which are done on your belly.
